You get what you pay for

J.K.R. "Joe", Amazon
24 February 2003
  • Summary: I received this printer free with my Sony Computer and it is the worst printer I've ever had the displeasure of using. Noisy print jobs and frequent paper jams make this little piece of work a source of great frustration.

  • Summary: I needed a replacement printer and ordered the Epson C40UX. It arrived quickly in excellent almost new condition & works more quietly than the one it replaced.

one step below junk

William A. Kobling, Amazon
2 February 2003
  • Summary: I should not complain about this printer, since I got a rebate that was equal to the amount I paid for it when I bought an IMAC. Essentially it was FREE. The trouble is I cannot understand WHY a manufacturer would make such a piece of junk, other than to TEST whether or not many consumers will buy a...

Junk printer, do not buy it

Qiang Zhang, Amazon
2 February 2003
  • Summary: I bought one from Dell but this printer runs out ink so quickly. I have printed less than 10 black-white pages for the first box of ink. I bought another one and it ran out before I printed 5 pages!!! And for the color part, I ONLY printed 2 pages and today I found all ink is gone!!

  • Summary: I also received this printer free from Dell when I bought my computer last fall. It worked perfectly for about two weeks, during use of the first cartridge. Then the troubles began. Installed a new cartridge and nothing worked. Called Epson and went through the headcleaning process.

loud and slow

Elizabeth630, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this printer free when I bought my new desktop for school. It prints very slowly, is very loud, and of poor quality. I have stopped using it to print papers because they looked very unprofessional and I did not like the look.

Short life span

Karen, Amazon
1 February 2003
  • Summary: I bought this printer for Xmas 2001. Within four months it didn't want to let the ink through. I parked it for three months while I used my old printer, then tried it again and it worked fine.

absolute junk

DavidC, Amazon
31 January 2003
  • Summary: This is my second C40UX - the first one stopped feeding paper - luckily it was under warranty, so Epson sent me another one. Lo and behold, a few months later, the second broke with the same issue! It is true, you get what you pay for - it was free with my Dell.

EXTREMELY SLOW PRINTER

B. Christensen, Amazon
30 January 2003
  • Summary: There are other printers in this price range that produce superior results with cheaper ink and faster speed - namely the Canon S330. I was never a big bubble jet fan, but they really have improved the technology on the Canono units.

Noisy but nice...

Ian McIntyre, Amazon
29 January 2003
  • Summary: One can actually get into the pleasant rhythm of the printer noise; this little unit works efficiently at its assigned tasks and the ink cartridges are cheaper than the HP, one of which I also own.
